Response from Meena:

To everyone who might be reading Jon's review:
Please note that the review was written AFTER I filed a complaint with Airbnb for damage to my furniture. Since the guest still refuses to claim responsibility (despite the indisputable evidence to the contrary) it is of course to be expected that he will leave a negative review and will find all sorts of faults with the room and his experience. However, for the sake of the argument and so as to reassure you of the irrelevance/faultiness of his statements, I will address the issues brought up:
1. The heating: This is not my responsibility. As standard for most Manhattan buildings and apartments, this unit has central heating which means heating cannot be adjusted directly. Of course, the good old fashioned way of cooling down the room by opening the window works perfectly for me!
2. The bed: the mattress was purchased two years ago (happy to show the receipt to whoever interested) and pretty much all my guests (close to a 100 at this point) have loved the bed. I guess the softness/hardness is a personal preference and I have no plans of replacing something that I myself and so many others find extremely comfortable. And I can guarantee is that this mattress is 100% better than the majority of medium-priced hotels in New York.
3. Construction. So yes, this is the center of the center of one of the busiest and wealthiest cities in the world. There is construction everywhere and I have no control over that either. Newsflash: if you don't want to hear construction noise do not come to New York in the foreseeable future. There are new buildings sprawling everywhere. And yes, at the moment it is probably hard to see the Empire State from the window, but you can still WALK to it in less than 10 minutes. I would think first hand experiences are always better than remote viewing.
4. Price. This is the holiday season and - indeed - New York gets a bit pricey. If you want cheaper rates, come in January! But, for the sake of the argument: Let's just consider the room rentals right across the street for my building: the charge 300% higher for a unit comparable to mine (without the books and expensive furniture of course). And, by the way, if you opt for a place across the street with a significantly higher price, you will:
i) still have to deal with the construction,
ii) the heat, and
iii) you will definitely not be able to see the Empire State

For the record:
i) Airbnb found sufficient proof of evidence for damage done and I was compensated for Jon's carelessness.
ii) The $70 USD that I received for the damage to my furniture are not even close to covering the aggravation and disappointment of having to deal with someone so irresponsible and immature.
Last but not least: This is my home and everything about it makes me happy and comfortable. But as much as I want to share this experience with my guests (and it has been a fabulous experience thus far!), I do hope never to have another Jon experience!
